I am a postdoctoral research fellow working with Dr Alex Leff and Dr Jenny Crinion studying acquired reading disorders after stroke. My work involves functional (MEG) and structural (MRI) neuroimaging of the neural networks involved in reading in both patients and healthy controls.
I am currently working on an MRC-funded project to develop new methods for reading rehabilitation in central alexia, an acquired reading disorder in stroke patients with speech and language problems (aphasia). This therapy involves both behavioural reading training and brain stimulation using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
